MT. FUJI

富士山[FUJI-SAN]

At 3,776 meters, Mt. Fuji is the highest independent mountain in Japan. With its graceful appearance, Mt. Fuji has enchanted and inspired not only Japanese but also such world-renowned artists as Van Gogh and Claude Monet. What fascinates people about Mt. Fuji? It cannot be the height, as there are many higher mountains around the globe. “Why is it shaped like that?” “What does it look like on the other side?” wonders a boy on a train whose eyes are riveted on Mt. Fuji, which may be the most imagination-evoking mountain in the world.
